So recently i sold my PC and bought this PC As i was desperate for a 3080
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/cyberpowerpc-gamer-supreme-gaming-desktop-intel-core-i9-10900k-16gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-rtx-3080-1tb-ssd-black/6428082.p?skuId=6428082

Turns out the AIO Was terrible and struggling to keep the temps below 100 C while gaming, resetting the PC. I replaced the AIO To a master air-ma620m, Swapped the side exhaust fans to intake as the PC had no intake, set a back fan to exhaust as well as 2 top exhausts as this seems to only way to format with the case i have. While gaming, my 10900K is still reaching mid 80's, low 90's with MEC and TVB Turned off in my BIOS. Here is a pic of my set up currently. If anyone could please give suggestions i would be forever grateful.

1)Fan setup in image 1 is wrong. You have no exhausts at all currently.
-Remove the top-front fan entirely.
-Flip the rear fan.
-Flip the top-rear fan.

2)A 10900K is no slouch to cool.

10th gen power tables above.

The MA620M isn't really adequate for a 10900K either.
NH-D15, NH-D15S, 280mm hybrid, if you don't want to overclock it.
360mm hybrid or better if you do want to overclock it.

The back and both top fans are set to exhaust, if i place my hand over them i feel air coming out, i had already tried to flip them and they were blowing air toward the cooler

The first image does not reflect that.

In more extreme situations of intake and exhaust only setups, the air pressure will regulate itself...
-Intake only, as you currently have it, air will escape through all possible gaps in the chassis.
-Exhaust only, air will get sucked in through all possible gaps.

Well temps are a little better so thanks for the recommendation, This is after playing horizon zero dawn on ultra for 20 mins View: https://imgur.com/a/4fWaDqx

are those safe or would you recommend something like replacing the side intakes to the front instead?

Better, but still not great. The remaining problem lies in the cooler itself, as I mentioned in the 2nd part of my 1st post.

Leave the side intakes as is. That is better because there is less air restriction from there compared to the front.

Damn well guess just not what I'd like to hear after spending 100$ on a cooler = /

Curious as to what your fan curve is set to for the CPU cooler. I'm wondering if there also isn't something going on there (or not).

Other than that, this is either an airflow issue, a cooler issue or an overclock (if OC'd).

Removal of side panel and using a fan to blow as much air into the case as possible will help determine which.

I believe i have it run at 100% at 50c.
Chip is not OC'd
